Hay Festival 2005: Very belated pictures

Some pictures from the Economist debate, and other odds and ends, including Goldie Hawn, wow!

Hattersley giving me evils. Hitchens ready to leave. Jon Snow in cream. Cream was the look for this years festival. People like to wear cream as they mature, this development isn't to be welcomed.

Hitch takes a white rose, then leaves to make some money at the book tent.

Christopher Hitchens signing.

A famous lady; Goldie Hawn. Not bad for her age, it has to be said.

Kazuo Ishiguro. Nice shirt luv.

Flintoff: How to be drunk properly in public. Footballers: Masters of the rubbish interview

On why he's no Celeb and what the freedom of Preston means to him:

I'm ugly, I'm over-weight - but I am happy. I'd never make a decent celebrity. What's most exciting about winning the Ashes is it means I'll be awarded the freedom of Preston, my hometown. That means I can drive a flock of sheep through the town centre, drink for free in no less than 64 pubs and get a lift home with the police when I become inebriated - what more could you want?
Well Andrew, you probably are a celebrity now. Whatever you do, don't let Hello! or OK! Magazine into your house. And Max Clifford stop telling us how much money newly famous people can make. He's always wheeled out on occasions like this for a dour sound bite. He needs to be in just for men adverts instead.

Footballers would never say such things as Flintoff did. Too image conscious and cocooned from the real world. Which is what is refreshing about the England Ashes squad, they appear to be normal blokes.

Footballers rarely have anything Insightful, Interesting, funny or original to say. Instead you get a stream of clichés, platitudes, pointing out the obvious, ughhs, various grunts, you knows, made up, at the end of the day etc. It's like listening to moronic pre-programmed robots. Is this the dividend players media training brings? Shut ye traps.

England vs. Northern Ireland analysis

Northern Ireland 1 - 0 England
Oh dear.
During his post match Interview Beckham said 'you know' about 30 times, which is over doing it a bit, you know.
How long before The Sun super impose a Swede on Sven's head? It's just got to be done.

Now will you stop Smoking?

My dad very kindly decided to bring me back this packet of cigarettes from Thailand, in lieu of a lecture about the dangers of Smoking. Thanks, I’ve not Smoked Red Marlboros very often, but they’re good. Quite Moreish, especially with several pints of Lager. Plus the rather explicit health warning made a good conversation piece. Thanks Dad.
